      Hello Dur73!

      When we want to raise with 1 limper in front of us our ideal raising size would be 4 + 1bb = 5bb so in this case it is $0.50 instead of $0.30. Next time raise a little bigger so you can get more money from the fish ;)

      On the Flop you hit toppair and I would just make a standard cBet of 65% (2/3rd). If he raises you , I go all-in with my Toppair Topkick, unfortunate he had QQ but since playing QQ like this is severely -EV for him, he will lose money in the long run

      Best regards,

      Gerv

      Using standart SSS rules, you fold AJ in middle position. Only play it on late position. And make standart raise when SHC hits.
